ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — Unilever United States, Inc. is recalling all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink products in cans. The recall is due to potential contamination of the drinks with Bacillus cereus, a pathogen that may cause diarrhea and possibly nausea or vomiting. The recall affects all canned products regardless of flavor, lot code or u.p.c. number, according to the company.

The products are packaged in cartons and containing four, six or 12 steel cans that are 11-oz each. Individual cans are also sold in certain retail outlets.

The company emphasized no other Slim-Fast products are affected by the recall and it was initiating the recall out of an abundance of caution after conducting quality testing on the R.-T.-D. drinks in cans. FBN
